First check Device Manager to see if there's an error symbol in the "Display Adapters" section.
If there is, re-install the driver for the graphics card. To point you to the correct driver you'll
need to tell use the make & model of your computer.

If Device Manager has no errors, then try a different signal-cable from PC to monitor.
If that makes no difference, the graphics card itself may have failed & will need replacing.

how am i supposed to check the device manager if nothing comes up on my monitor? i can't see what i'm doing, that's the problem. and i've bought another video card and just trying installing it, see if it'd work with at least partly without the drivers since i can't see what i'm doing..and that isn't working either
